Open Thread for February 27, 2015…Jeb Bush gets a Big One…

Jeb Bush had to come out at least even at the CPAC get together today….

Scott Walker has been riding a Conservative wave for the past few weeks that has SOME thinking he could be even with Jeb….

He isn’t….

No matter what the polling shows?

Scott Walker does NOT have the organization, history or the expertise to beat Jeb Bush and his family….

Today Jeb Bush came on stage and started slowly….

But by the time he left?

He was Ok….

Not Great….

But enough to keep truckin on against people who think a guy who IS a Conservative…But is willing to bend on certain issues?….Can run a better campaign come next fall than a guy who never finished college and is clueless about leading a country of 300 Million….

      1. Republican Rocky Chavez enters U.S. Senate race in California

        Rocky Chávez, an assemblyman from Oceanside, announced his campaign for U.S. Senate on Thursday, becoming the first major Republican to enter the race to succeed Democratic incumbent Barbara Boxer.

        Chávez, a former U.S. Marine colonel and onetime member of the Oceanside City Council, was first elected to the Assembly in 2012. In a written statement, he said he would focus in the Senate on national security, education and the economy.

        “I believe absolutely that I am a uniquely qualified candidate,” Chávez said. “I’m a fighter who brings bipartisan support to issues and gets them solved.”

        Chávez will face a tough challenge in a state dominated by Democrats.
